Online Printing Payment

There are a number of ways to credit your printing account. Value Loaders are available in the Library and you can visit the Copy Shop in the IMT Walk In Centre (Library 1st Floor) to top up in person. 

To top up your account online, you transfer money from your bank account (using a debit or credit card) to your Papercut printing account via WorldPay - the secure internet payment service. 

Once in your printing account, credit can only be used to pay for print services.

  • Login to your Papercut printing account: or using the desktop shortcut 
  • Select 'Add Credit' from the left hand menu
  • Choose the amount of money you'd like to transfer 
  • Enter a note to identify the transaction
